took time away from defending chris christie to praise vladimir putin. >> putin decides what he wants to do, and he does it in half a day. he makes a decision, and he executes it. quickly. then everybody reacts. that's what you call a leader. president obama, got to think about it, he's got to go over it again. he's got to talk to more people about it. >> ah, yes. a man whose governing jurisdiction never extended beyond new york harbor, who doesn't understand the difference between a leader and a dictator. joining me now, steve clemons, washington editor at large for the "atlantic" and an msnbc contributor, and david rodin, investigator reporter for reuters. steve, on the political front i was struck by eric cantor today, whose statement reads as if it was something issued in the 1970s or the 1980s in congress whenever there would be a foreign crisis or hot spot involving the soviet union, it had that bipartisan unity. it was exactly out of the old playbook of the way congress would support a president in this situation. >> i mean, we should applaud eric cantor for that tone and postu
knowledge that chris christie had. it is not about the governor. it's about people revery close to him, bridget kelly principlely? >> the hard thing here and this has been the case since we heard about bridget kelly and david wildstein and the ft. lee traffic closures, the best case scenario, he not only hired people that would engage in this political payback and joke about it before engaging in it but he also didn't know senior members of his staff were engaging in it. that's the best narrative for chris christie that preserves chris christie as a 2016 candidate. anything else -- this isn't it -- anything else that comes out that suggests his knowledge likely dooms him as a 2016 candidate. it's a bad -- his choices are between a bad storyline and worse story line. >> to give you a taste from the e-mails, one from bridget kelly about this rabbi who apparently he and wildstein were feuding on port authority. kelly said, we cannot cause traffic problems in front of his house, can we? wildstein responds, flights to tel aviv all mysteriously delayed. it's certainly not a pretty picture an

was waiting for first responders. her family said they don't blame chris christie, but this was just causing all sorts of problems. there are accidents. there are people angry, traffic, and certainly closing down these lanes without telling anyone why made it a lot harder. >> i wonder if there is another case. let's take another one we have on the tape here, which was made available today. the traffic jam didn't just cause delays, as you suggest, but accidents begin to pile up, fender-benders. here is a 911 call from one of those accidents. >> put on your hazards. >> 911, where is your emergency? 911, where is your emergency? >> i'm on the george washington bridge. i was just in a car accident. we were rear-ended. >> upper level or the lower level? >> upper level. >> what direction? >> we're heading into the city. >> let's go to the politics. i often try to think about what it's like to be somebody in one of these horrible cases. now you're bridget kelly, right? >> right. >> for all i know she is a political operative, a regular person who does what they like to do in the interests of the bo
of information out there that has to be gathered. >> and tonight in boston, chris christie and mitt romney. >> they don't come better than chris christie. >> a bad story line and a worse story line. >> that's generally not a right way to launch a campaign for president. >> ted cruz secedes from the union. >> he's looking at 2016. >> if that means destroying mitch mcconnell, so be it. >> ted cruz is believed to be one of the most polarizing figures in america politics. >> for him, compromise is a curse word. >> things can change in politics. >> tea party patriots are gathered in d.c. to mark the fifth anniversary. >> it's a civil war within the republican party. >> you don't keep following failed strategies. >> the midterms will be here before we know it. >> there's a possibility that republicans will pick up the senate. >> there is a certain amount of reality that we have to deal with. >> house speaker john boehner. >> it's boner, boner. >> strategy session. >> democrats hope if they can't win the house, maybe republicans can lose it. >> the new jersey legislature's special committee inves

in cripple yeah. crimea. >>> we have a report on where the chris christie is headed. you'll want to stick around for that late they are morning. we begin with the crisis in ukraine and president obama's 90-minute phone call with russian president vladimir putin late yesterday. that conversation president obama told president putin that the u.s. may have to boycott the upcoming g-8 summit in russia and threaten ed further action f russia does not the withdraw troops from ukrainian territory of crimea. we'll go to the white house for the latest on that in a moment. first more on the events moving at break neck speed in ukraine this weekend as indicated by the substance of that phone call. russian forces have been taking over crimea apparently without firing a single shot. without even appearing to be russian forces, for that matter. long lines of tanks and trucks and soldiers wearing uniforms without any identifying marks moving into critical areas of the southern ukraine territory of crimea, a section of the former soviet republic that juts out into the black sea which makes it strategical
the dangerous traffic jam ordered by people working for chris christie, we're hearing for the first time the police and emergency calls from the chaos of those gridlocked streets. these calls were released by the city of ft. lee. and in them, we hear people who need paramedics and police complaining about delays. we hear first responders blocked from doing their job who don't understand why they're there is such a mess created around the george washington bridge. >> do you know if anything happened on the bridge? >> i'll give them a call. i think it's sun glare. >> 10-4. >> okay, 4-5-3, they have a new pattern. they're testing new pattern traffic from off the washington. it's down to one lane now. it's a test. >> at traffic is a nightmare. >> 10-4. we're getting calls from irate motorists. >> you're aware the town is a total gridlock, right? >> total gridlock. a nightmare. and in the middle of all this, people were facing real-life emergencies all over the affected area. here is one 911 emergency call with details redacted by the city of ft. lee. >> 911, where is your emergency? >> medic
on obamacare in a very long time. >>> and, half an hour from now, new jersey governor chris christie will be back before his constituents. we've got an eye and an ear on that town hall as his approval numbers may be taking a hit. >>> and tick tock, a late night tweet may actually be the best clue we have to whether or not governor jan brewer will veto sb-1062. >>> good morning, i'm ari melber in for chris jansing here at 30 rock, and we're going to get to all those stories at home, but we begin with a potentially big change for thousands of our troops overseas. the president has run out of patience with afghanistan president hamid karzai. the president has pulled out all u.s. troops in afghanistan by the end of the year. this is new, and that is unless afghanistan signs a bilateral security agreement. that pact would, of course, protect any american troops who did remain. now with this potentially major shift in ground deployment, nbc correspondent just released a new interview with general martin dempsey, where they talked about the new plans, the military's role, and dempsey -- to
fannie packs. >>> new jersey governor chris christie says the investigation into bridgegate is a distraction that will not prevent him from doing his job. on his ask the governor radio show, christie said he won't give in to the hysteria surrounding specific questions into that political scandal that just won't go away. christie says people want to work with him. >> i was at a town hall meeting today in longville township. 525 people there and not one question on any of this stuff. people want me to do my job. i'm going to do my job. if the legislature wants to be partisan and political and block the agenda that the voters voted for in november for their governor, the only person all the voters voted for, then they'll have to put up with the political consequences that come along with that. >> christie continues to defend his handling of bridgegate as the investigation moves forward into the lane closures last year on the george washington bridge. >>> will she or won't she? hillary clinton hasn't said if she plans to run for president in 2016 but her fiery speeches and her s
't complain. they just want her to win. do you want to talk about this or chris christie? >> i can talk about both of them. >> would you like to have christie to set it up? >> sure. >> here you go. >> what do we do? >> elect a new president. that's what you do. >> yay! >> we're going to elect a new president either way, right? >> exactly. libertarians and conservatives by nature dispice government, but it's time to get over that. the point in running is not to be a public servant. we want to make money. but it's to prevent the others from becoming public servants. it's like you don't want to drive a bus for the living, but if the brus driver is drunk and naked, you have to pum him out of the seat. they have to run government to save government from itself. it's time to win, baby, as al davis would say, and barbara bush is right. there's a nation of 313 million. only five people are qualified and they're from the same family? come on. >> what do you think, dana? >> you know where i am on that, bob. let me ask you on democrats. if hillary clinton decides not to run, what are the democrats going
of how democrats have responded to the chris christie bridge scandal. they say, you know, the media coverage that's been given to chris christie and the way he may or may not have abused his power is not that dissimilar from the irs and that the media, and democrats are letting president obama off the hook in the irs case. >> well, let me get back, again, back and forth. this news story, what is the substance now of the irs investigation? is this just part of a sort of a broad front effort to nail the president, whether it's irs, benghazi, or ukraine? or is there really some pay dirt that a legislator would find powerful? information they're getting? >> you know, that's what they're looking for. and when representative cummings came out, he said that, too, that they want to get to the bottom of what happened, how to reform things over there. you had lois lerner come out and essentially apologize as well. and there were some indications early on that she would actually cooperate in this hearing. i think that's why you saw representative issa get so sort of frustrated on his end becau
. thanks so much for joining me. chris christie going back to his political roots today holding his second town hall of the year in morris county, new jersey. that's where christie began his political career some 20 years ago. our chief congressional correspondent, dana bash, has more from washington. good morning, dana. >> good morning, carol. it is 111th town hall. who is counting, right? he is known for in new jersey for doing this kind of back and forth. it is something that he and his aides believe has helped with his popularity there. he is going to need all the help he can get because, never mind nationwide, even in new jersey, he has seen his popularity plummet because of all the scandals that are surrounding him. the name of the game for him at this point is really to just keep his eyes on his current job, his day job, to be the governor of new jersey, to have these kind of town halls. the last one that he had was about sandy relief. this is going to be more focused on the big speech that he gave yesterday, which is his budget. if you look at the kind of budget that he proposed, o
scandal that won't go away for new jersey governor chris christie. those tapes which were recorded during that massive traffic tie up on the george washington bridge were released by emergency officials in ft. lee, new jersey. cnn is going through the recordings right now. investigative correspondent joins us from washington. he's one of the guys going through those records. tell us more. >> reporter: good morning. we have more than 20 hours of 911 tapes during that week where the bridge lanes were closed. remember ft. lee was hardest hit by those lane closures, two of the three lanes from ft. lee on to that bridge was closed. and that really made ems officials very concerned. at the time the ems coordinator there wrote a letter and said trips that should have taken a few minutes took more than three times that long. so these tapes are a real-time window into the havoc that this traffic jam was causing. if you remember there was a story of a 91-year-old woman who had a heart attack. the paramedics were caught in some of that gridlock. her daughter later said she didn't think the gridlock
connell nationally. you've got national figures fighting over the direction of the party. are they going the chris christie direction or rand paul ted cruz direction. i think that will sort out in the primary. that's the way, you know, the republicans sort of a double edged sword. it's a way to define their party. another tough primary battle looming in 2016. you're likely to have a very big field. if that's a very big field standing up against hillary clinton, that's presumed right now, of course, that could make it tougher to win the general. >> yet right now the eight point advantage among voters in states with senate races, hard to believe, david, we're coming up against another election in a couple of months. here we go again. in the meantime a lot to talk about with russia and ukraine. we'll get back to that. thanks so much. russian media reporting that the russian government has now test fired an intercontinental ballistic missile, an icbm. jennifer, what do you know about this stunning all right? >> we've just been able to confirm with defense officials in fact russia did test icbm. they w
